TCDA celebrated 60 Years in San Antonio at our 2015 Convention on July 23-26, 2015!
TCDA was founded in 1955. The first two TCDA Conventions were held in Dallas, and all Conventions since have been in San Antonio. There were no elected officers until 1957; the first two Boards served for only one year. Since 1957, Boards have served two-year terms. TCDA thanks former Executive Director Marvin J Pollard for his help in gathering information from TCDA's early years.
